  • Transportation: When you enter the campus at West Gatehouse (near 15th Ave and NE 40th Street), pull up to the kiosk and ask for parking close to Physics and Astoronmy building. You should use passcode "QuarkNet" without additional payment. They should direct you to lots C1-C6,  which are fairly close to the buildings. For complete details on UW parking, see the parking info page.

  • Each student needs to finish the Pre-lecture assignment before coming to UW.
  • Each student needs to bring his/her own laptop to UW. 
    • It's fine for two students to share one laptop alghough you will find it is easier to use two laptops in each group.
  • Each student needs to prepare their own lunch bag (Sorry. No microwave availalbe).
    • Due to timezone difference (we need to join the vidyo conference in midwest time), we will quite likely work on our lunch during analysis.
